New Zealand batsman Corey Anderson became the fastest man to score a century in one day international cricket nearly after 18 years on Wednesday.
Anderson got the feat after he scored a hundred in just 36 balls against West Indies in the third ODI. Earlier this record was in the name of Boom Boom Afridi who scored a century in 37 balls in 1996.
It was a perfect New Year start for the young Anderson, where the match was reduced to 21 over per side because of rain, Anderson scored a brilliant not out 131 of 47 balls.
The 23 years old rookie player who has just playing his seventh ODI scored score six fours and fourteen sixes in the match.
With the help of Anderson’s brilliant fastest century and also century from Jesse Ryder, this pair powered New Zealand to a scarcely believable 283 in just 21 overs.
